APT AND PROVINCIAL PUBLIC TRANSPORT NEWS IN COUNCIL, GORIZIA AND CAPRIVA

05/10/2019

Once the Province has been made, it is necessary to give it wheels so that this institution, which fortunately will be returned to us, will have a concrete meaning. Our interest, which stems from an article that the journalist Devetag reported on August 24th on the page FB goriziagorizia (and that we report in the Notes) has put at the centre the problems of our territory and in particular the public transport. We did not waste time: in this regard, a question was presented to the town of Capriva, signed by the town councillors Rossella Dosso and Luca Michelutti, among the promoters of gorizia3.0. And a motion was presented in Gorizia by the young town councillor of the Lega Andrea Tomasella. It will be discussed shortly and we will be very careful that these proposals fall into nothing, as often happens in our parts. The aim is to give concrete services to our future province and to bring it out of the dead gore in which it is and has been hunted. The documents speak of lines that connect Gorizia to Cormons and Gradisca continuously and safely, at a price accessible to all. It is possible: it is also and not only a matter of political will. This means uniting the territory of the Destra Isonzo and promoting new mobility that will certainly benefit the elderly, but also the young.


THE TWO DOCUMENTS:


1)

to the mayor of Capriva, Rossella Dosso and Luca Michelutti 

We ask the mayor and the council to make the Municipality of Capriva del Friuli an active part to define - with the municipalities of San Lorenzo Isontino, Mossa, Moraro and Farra d'Isonzo - a proposal that transforming the service from extra-urban to urban, could allow the continuous availability of Apt vehicles at a reasonably frequent hourly rate, between Gorizia, Cormons and Gradisca d'Isonzo; the implementation of the proposal would enable an essential service to be offered not only to users in Capri (given the unavailability of rail transport) but also to those in the whole of the Soča region, who would benefit from a service that reconciles the need to increase mobility through more frequent use of public transport with the need to limit damage to the environment.


2)

And here is the motion presented in Gorizia by Andrea Tomasella: "The recent ruling of the Council of State rejected the appeal of Busitalia, Società delle Ferrovie dello Stato, confirming the legitimacy of the decision of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region to assign the management of regional public transport to TplFvgScarl: the Consortium formed by Trieste Trasporti, Apt Gorizia, Saf Udine and Atap Pordenone; this determination will allow an organisational review aimed at improving the quality of public transport for the benefit of users throughout the region, financial savings useful for the modernisation of the fleet of vehicles as well as an increase in mileage in the performance of transport services; the new presidency of the APT and the Regional Councillor responsible have expressed their willingness to start a phase of dialogue with local authorities to share in operational terms the definition of new services according to the needs of the local authorities themselves. It is, therefore, requested to define - with the municipalities of Cormons, Gradisca d'Isonzo, San Lorenzo Isontino, Mossa, Capriva, Moraro and Farra d'Isonzo - a proposal which, by transforming the service from extra-urban to urban, could allow the continuous availability of APT vehicles at a reasonably frequent hourly rate, between Gorizia, Cormons and Gradisca d'Isonzo; to put in place all the necessary instruments so that this offer becomes an essential service not only for Gorizia's users and tourists but also for all the citizens of the entire Isonzo area, who would thus benefit from a service adapted to the changing mobility needs of the population
